Curbside Fall Leaf Collection Begins November 2 in Area B

2020 curbside leaf collection begins on Monday, November 2 in Area B

Curbside leaf collection will begin for the 2020 season on Monday, November 2 in Area B. City crews will test leaf collection equipment in random areas of the city on October 28 – 30. Collection will officially begin in Area B, then proceed to Areas C, D, and A. 

Residents in Area B should prepare their leaves for collection at this time; however, residents in all areas can start raking leaves to the street now.

To prepare leaves for collection:

  • Leave one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb to allow a path for water to properly drain from the street;
  • Avoid placing brush, sticks, branches, or refuse into curbside leaf piles, as doing so may damage equipment and injure workers;
  • Place fall yard waste (sticks, pumpkins, etc.) in yard bags or bins at the curb on refuse collection day. Annual bin stickers or 40-cent bag stickers are not required through the end of the 2020 collection season.
